Word Association Game

Postby phaed » 2009-05-30, 20:50

Okay, let's try a new game. The name is kind of self-explanatory, but I'll write about it anyway:

The person above you will post a word in another language (with an English translation, of course). You then write and translate the first word that comes to your mind into a new post. This can help with vocabulary, both in English and your foreign languages!

An example chain could be:
Post 1 wrote:[flag]fr[/flag] chien dog
Post 2 wrote:[flag]de[/flag] Katze cat
Post 3 wrote:[flag]tr[/flag] kürk fur


I'll start.

:lol: That's because "lemons" sold in El Salvador are green, instead of those bigger yellow things so common in the U.S. and Canada.

No, that's just the genitive of δέντρο, tree. Φύλλο is leaf.
